No matter what industry you are in, creating a life and business you love will inspire you to create content. On my Mexico trip, I created content on wellness, business and travel for social media, online courses and events.
Before I left for Mexico, I created a vision, intention, and outline in How to Create Content Like a Boss. Keep in mind, I stay flexible to allowing things to flow and evolve.

Starting Point for Creating Content
A great place to start is list out 3 to 12 things you love to share that create value and inspire others.
The next step is determine where you will share.
Ideas for what you love to share
Platforms are you on now and new ones
Why do you want to share
What you will use the content for
The next step might involve brainstorming names for your themes, social media posts and blogs. I've got great examples with our Creation Club lifestyle transformation mastermind and the free #14daychallenge.
For Mexico, I knew I wanted to share day in the life, morning routine, and wellness videos daily. I knew I wanted to share recaps, travel and highlights. I outlined ideas for our blog, mastermind and events so I knew the intention for the content walking in.
Yes, things changed daily and I adjusted. At the same time, with vision and clarity, it helps you simplify and get things done easier and faster.

1. Cast a Vision for Your Content
The first thing I do now each and every time I start creating content is cast a vision. I imagine what I want the experience to feel like. I consider how I want it to look like to you. Before I even begin to create, I imagine feeling like a boss done with the content.
When you empower yourself like this, there is no way you won't create content (or anything) like a boss.
I want you to know this is a result of years of transformation inside and out. I believe transformation is required to create a life and business you love.
When you start with the end and mind and use your imagination, the possibilities are limitless.
Here is a helpful list to help you cast a vision
Visualize how you feel creating, shooting, filming
Determine where you want to shoot or film
Identify themes and areas you focus on
Before I went to Mexico, I imagined Chiibal Hostal and filming videos on wellness, business and travel for social media and our online courses. I saw myself experiencing water activities and filming inspirational beach videos. I imagined you when I would write my blog or film my videos on the recap of the day and much more.
2 Set Your Intention to Create Content Like a Boss
Casting a vision helps create clarity to set your intention. Once I imagine how I will feel this includes imagining how you will feel with the value I create. My purpose is to help you create a life and business you love.
For Mexico, I set an intention of taking you along the journey with me to create a life and business you love. This includes creating a feeling that you are there with me in Mexico, creating content, and learning from me like I am your friend.
I am clear about speaking to side-hustlers, entrepreneurs, and travelers who want to create a life and business they love. I imagine brands I want to partner with on wellness, media, lifestyle and travel. When I speak, I don't speak to everyone. Not everyone is open to or focused on creating what they love. Or, I or may not be the guide or platform that most aligns for them.
Consider why you are creating content and what platforms you are creating for. I knew I was creating content for Instagram, Facebook, and Blogs. I maximize content and repurpose it so I knew we would do this for the podcast, course launches, and live events,
These are thoughts I have in my mind when I shoot photos, film videos, and outline blogs. This is what I think of when I am inviting you to create in our community online and live. Years ago, I experienced many fears and challenges with money. I have grown a lot. At the same time, I am and always will be a work in progress.
Here is a helpful list to help you set an intention
Who you have in mind that you are creating for?
How do you want people to feel when they connect with you?
What platforms are you creating on and for?
Why are you creating content?
Before arriving in Mexico and all during the trip, I shared and created value for social, courses and events. I imagined how this content would help you create a life and business you love, and how you would feel
3. Outline for Content Like a Boss
Outlines for your content help you walk into the situation feeling like a boss. Even when I am in Atlanta, I think of ways to create content constantly. Whether I am creating in Atlanta, submitting a proposal to a brand, or outlining content for our next retreat, I exercise the content creation muscle all the time.
For example, this post is a result of a prior outline. This week alone, I submitted outlines for content to 3+ public relations firms already, connected on campaigns on influencer marketing platforms, and outlined our launches coming up for online courses.
When you are creating your outline, consider platforms, purpose, and timing.
Examples for Mexico Included
Instagram & IGTV Series & YouTube
Blog Posts & Tying to IG
All of the Above & Course/Event Launches
With the trip to Mexico, I created content like a boss by:
1) Sharing stories and lives as I go on Instagram & FB
2) Filming face to face and behind the scenes
3) Sharing a IGTV video daily
4) Repurposing the same videos for YouTube
5) Integrating videos later in the Blog & Podcast
6) Planning my Feed & being spontaneous
7) Photos & Videos for Future Posts on Courses & Events & Retreats
You can see how this sets you up to create content like a boss.
Consider constantly new ways to post on platforms and use the same content. For example, I went to Cuba a few years ago for our hands on CREATE events and retreats In expanding our content creation for lifestyle transformation and entrepreneurship, I decided I would create a one day guide like our others, and submit a pocket guide to We Are Travel Girls.
The final tip in platforms is share your content over and over. Based on human psychology and the amount of information we deal with daily, it takes the average person 5+ times to take action. So, don't take it personal when you aren't popular overnight. Anyone that you see now with thousands of views or likes put in years of work.
Thinking about how you want to create content like a boss next? Is it with your vision and intention? Or are you already on the outline for your social media and blogs? Now, you are creating content like a boss.
Content Like a Boss in Mexico
Unlike Mexico, creating content is a journey, not a destination. Every time I create content, I learn new ways to create content. I get new ideas all the time. I learn how to be more effective and efficient in many ways. Our community teaches me new things too.
